Need a book? Engineering books recommendations...

 I have the Blodgett book and the AISC Design guide.  Both references do not discuss a column base subjected to Moment with uplift forces.  (When i say uplift, i mean that the axial force on the column is tension, or Pu = -60 K) For instance, if my uplift is large in combination with a smaller moment, there may not be any compression force on the baseplate.  All bolts will be in tension, but one side of the anchor rods will be in higher tension loads than the other due to the moment. Now, what if you have a large uplift, and a large moment, where you have a little compression on the baseplate, etc.  With these conditions, i don't think that the the _expression_ for 'Y' (the length of plate in compression) is applicable. I hope you can understand my question.  if you need an example, how would you design a baseplate for Pu= -60K with Mu = 130 k-ft? Thanks for your responses... ```Andy Heigley, PE ``` Micayas, Julius wrote: Andy,   I got one good reference for you from AISC titled: Steel Design Guide Series 1   Column Base Plate By: John T.

The AISC design guide does not discuss a column base with moment in combination with uplift. Does anybody have any references for such a design?
